LIfe is short, writing is hard, and we live in an age of distraction.
Aside from the necessities of life (your job, your health, your family, your relationships, etc.), there are SO many things to waste one’s time on; YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr, video games, news outlets, TV (for those who still watch TV, if not, Netflix/Hulu). I’m not immune to these distractions either. I could be working on book three of Convergence, and here I am blogging (way to go, J!). But, the thing is, I know I’m being distracted. I’m not kidding myself here. Every blog I post, every meme I share, every tweet I retweet is just a few more precious minutes chipped off my already finite mortal existence, but one time-waster I’ve never enjoyed is excessively sharing quotes about writing instead of actually writing. I’m sorry, but that one feels just a bit too ironic for me.
